“To make the best wines not sold in stores!”
After several calls from the French who wanted to purchase our 70 acres of south-facing slopes, Robin learned they wanted the land for wine grapes. The family sold the sheep, and planted grapevines. “The only thing we knew about wine grapes was that we liked wine and dried grapes were called raisins,” noted Robin Pfeiffer. However, he learned after careful analysis that their site was ideal for grapes. New to the industry and with timber growing on the property, the Pfeiffer family chose to harvest what was needed to serve as the trellising posts for the vineyard. Each post was cut, peeled and pounded by hand. “The hand peeling process took an entire summer, before we could stack the posts to dry, and then be treated,” recalls Robin.
